Research shows that all students experience “brain drain” over the summer. Teachers typically spend four to six weeks reteaching things from the previous year. It’s very important that you keep stimulating your child’s brain so that they don’t “lose” anything. People often view summer as a time to take a break from school and anything educational. However, it could be somewhat damaging to your child. If anything, parents should continue their child’s education so that they can maintain, if not increase what they already know. They could have a greater advantage over other students in their class.
